  • Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 "Denizens of Dinosaur Land" poster: The Koopas are back in force! When you jump on top of them, they shoot right out of their shell.

There are four different colours of Koopa shells.

"Common soldiers in Bowser's army, Koopa Troopas can retreat into their shells. Unbelievable as it may seem, they're clearly unaware of being kicked and sent sliding when in this position. There are many Koopa types, each with a different shell color and unique traits. They all wear T-shirts and shorts under their shells."

Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]


Name Image Game Description
Green Koopa Troopa BrawlTrophy157.png NES Super Mario Bros. "A henchman of Bowser. In the old days, they'd retreat into their shells for a short while to protect themselves after being stepped on. Recently, however, some have begun to immediately pop back out. You'll often find them marching straight ahead--if the path ends, they'll just march into the abyss. Surely there are no braver turtles to be found."
SNES Super Mario World
Red Koopa Troopa BrawlTrophy158.png NES Super Mario Bros. "A turtle in the employ of Bowser. Koopas formerly traveled on four legs, but they've recently been spotted strolling on two. This has freed up their hands, allowing them to chase Mario with nets. Their adaptability must make Bowser very happy indeed. Unlike their green-shelled brethren, red ones do about-faces when they run out of road. They're a bright group."

Koopa Troopas are the main representatives of Bowser's army. They are just about as common as Goombas. They know no fear, bravely charging ahead even if it means falling off a cliff or into a hole. They do this in Smash Run as well. Defeating them will reduce them to a shell you can throw. These turtles are just as common as Goombas in Bowser's army. They're brave little soldiers, and nothing will make them stop in their tracks - not you, not holes, not even cliffs. The same goes in Smash Run, too. Once they see a fighter, they'll go right after them. Beat them or stomp on them to turn them into shells you can throw.
These turtles are just as common as Goombas in Bowser's army. They may look meek, but they have the guts to leap off any cliff they come across. If you jump on one, its shell will be yours to kick or throw as you please. Many locations in Mario games are named after these enemies, such as Koopa Beach and Koopa Park.
Koopa Troopa (Red) KoopaTroopaRedTrophy3DS.png N/A N/A Bowser's go-to foot soldiers. They sport red shells and advance forward, but they have the common sense not to walk off cliffs. During Smash Run, they'll advance toward any fighter they see, attacking with their whole body. These Koopas leave red shells when beaten. These Koopas are a lot like their green counterparts, except their shells are red, and they have the sense not to blindly walk off cliffs or into holes. If one spots you in smash run, it'll attack with it's whole body, so watch out! Defeat it to turn it into a shell you can throw at other enemies.

Red indicates exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version.
Blue indicates exclusive to the Wii U version.
